Online Payment Fraud Detection and Prevention Apps

The relative ease, convenience and reach facilitated by online channels for businesses has led to the development of a broad set of digital services. The accessibility of the Internet and the ability to commit fraud remotely creates an appetizing prospect for criminals.

Meanwhile, the potential attack surface for miscreants is enormous; some 94 billion transactions were made for remote goods purchases in 2016, which is only a fraction of the total eCommerce landscape.

A new market study from Juniper Research has found that spending on online fraud detection and prevention (FDP) solutions will reach $9.3 billion by 2022 -- that's an increase of 22 percent over this year’s anticipated spend.

FDP Market Development

The research found that perceptions of high software costs, combined with relatively low awareness of effective solutions in the eCommerce space, were slowing service adoption. Nevertheless, it predicted that several factors would prove instrumental in driving the market forward.

According to the latest global market study by Juniper Research, the growing threat of insecure IoT (Internet of Things) devices would be key in driving FDP spend.

The evolution of IoT botnets from DDoS (Distributed Denial-of-Service) weapons aimed at fraud automation tools has influenced this trend, owing to a requirement for better customer verification tools.


Meanwhile, Juniper predicted the launch of 3DS 2.0 (3-D Secure 2.0) would have a similar impact. It claimed 3DS 2.0 would both reduce fraud and result in fewer basket abandonment, if merchants invested in authentication solutions as part of their FDP strategy.

Finally, it cited the upcoming PSD2 (revised payment services directive) and the move to open banking APIs in Europe, North America and Asia as a further driver.

"APIs expose a set of business logic rules, which by their nature are susceptible to abuse," said Steffen Sorrell, senior analyst at Juniper Research. "This will drive banks and service providers to greater emphasis on protecting those APIs."

Outlook for FDP Applications Growth

Juniper predicted that emerging markets, such as Latin America, Indian Subcontinent and Africa & Middle East would become key targets for banking and payments fraud.

Collectively, these regions will account for only 4 percent of global FDP spend in 2022. The research findings noted that stronger regulation to protect consumers as well as better consumer education in safer online practices were key issues to address.

Artificial Intelligence Growth at an Inflection Point

Business technology investment no longer follows a predictable path to growth. The global venture capital (VC) investment in artificial intelligence (AI) was close to its peak in 2021 reaching $22.3 billion, according to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research. This is just $400 million shy of the historical high of $22.7 billion recorded in 2019. Compared to the $15 billion recorded in 2020, the market made a remarkable recovery, with a 48.5 percent year-on-year growth. Will the future AI marketplace return to stable growth, or will it remain volatile? Artificial Intelligence Market Development "COVID-19 greatly accelerated the speed of digital transformation within the enterprise. Businesses are looking for solutions to work processes automation, customer care, due diligence, transcription and translation, and sales and marketing enablement tools," said Lian Jye Su, research director at ABI Research .

How a Digital-First CEO Leads Transformation

Some leaders reject the notion that "wait and see" is the best response to disruptive change. Savvy senior executives are already driving digital business transformation throughout their organization in an effort to gain a bold strategic advantage. According to the latest market study by International Data Corp (IDC), Digital-First CEOs plan to drive at least half of their income from digital business products, services, and experiences by 2027 -- that's ahead of the market average of 39 percent. Driven by their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these business leaders have changed how they think about the relationship between business and technology, and how they approach the next digital transformation era -- from scaling digital technology to guiding a viable digital business. Digital Business Market Development IDC defines digital business as value creation based on technology, which entails: 1) Automated customer-facing processes and internal operations; 2) Provision

Digital Solutions for Industrial & Manufacturing Firms

Executive leaders of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) are seeking guidance on how to apply new business technology in their manufacturing operations. CIOs and CTOs are tasked with gaining insight into the best solutions for digital transformation. ABI Research evaluated the impact politics, regulation, the economy, supply chain, ESG, and technology are having on FMCG, pharma, producers of steel, chemicals, pulp and paper -- as well as the mining and oil & gas sectors. Digital Transformation Market Development "Our assessment found that the FMCG sector is under pressure from all sides," says Michael Larner, industrial & manufacturing research director at ABI Research . Securing raw materials is challenging considering lockdowns in China and limited grain supplies from Ukraine. Supply shocks are raising input costs, and operating costs are rising with higher energy costs coupled with the pressure to pay higher wages and work sustainably. "We all hoped that with th
